The video below shows the demolition process of the 16 storey Hebble Court tower block in Mixenden which had stood tall within the valley since 1965.
Credit for this great footage goes to A.R Demolition, based in Nuneaton who also invited pupils from Ash Green Primary School to go along and watch the action.
The physical demolition of the high rise Hebble Court in Mixenden will start from the week commencing Monday 1 June 2015 onwards.
Early on Sunday 31 May a very large machine will be police escorted into the site and will be there for about 2 weeks to take down the height of the block with operatives positioned on the surrounding streets to make sure passers by & drivers are aware of the works.
No roads are planned to be closed but operatives may ask drivers & passers by to just hold for a time depending on which sides of the block are coming down.
Residents at neighbouring houses are advised that due to the location of the tower and exposure to the wind it is likely that dust will migrate from the site therefore it is recommended that windows are kept closed during the day during the demolition works.
